Tuesday: time to talk tresses with Wella EIMI from Beauty Brands

Hi ya Gorgeous!
 It's sort of 'ish Fall in Arizona. I'm ready to try some new hair styles now that I can wear my hair down more. In the heat, it's always up in a bun or ponytail.


 So enter the Wella EIMI collection from Beauty Brands. I was just at the Barrett Jackson car auction in Las Vegas and had these goodies along for the ride! I thought the weather would be in the 80's and I could wear my hair down. Nope! 100's!

Hey ya Gorgeous!
I love Mondays.
And, it's Monday.

P.S. As you can see, I have a boo boo in the editing, or lack there of. Would you let me know in the comments on the video if you think it should be cut or to keep both?

Fall is here for some areas. In Arizona, it's going to be a while for this season that is otherwise known as pumpkin season.

Celebrate today with a DIY pumpkin foot scrub from celebrity nail artist and owner of As U Wish Nail Salon, Skyy Hadley.
 
“Pumpkins are more than just for carving on Halloween,” she noted. “They’re rich in vitamins and nutrients and can do wonders for your feet!” They contain “various enzymes that help nourish and brighten the skin, and just by adding raw sugar you have a perfect foot scrub,” she said.
 
PUMPKIN FOOT SCRUB
Ingredients:
1 can pureed pumpkin
1 cup plain yogurt
½ cup raw sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon olive oil
 
Directions:
Mix pureed pumpkin in a bowl. Stir in a yogurt, honey, sugar and olive oil. Wash your feet in warm water, and while your feet are moist, apply the scrub using your hands in a circular motion. Massage the mask onto your feet for 10 minutes on each foot and remove with warm water and a washcloth.

7th Heaven Masks: perfect for travel!

Hi ya Gorgeous!

I am in Las Vegas at the Barrett Jackson car auction. Oy! It's so hot!
As you know, travel to Las Vegas comes with so many different ...things...

It's high desert, there is a lot of pollution, and then the casino air mixed with the heat and sweating of being outside.
My skin needs every second of detoxing and cleaning with some pampering added too!
 The mask on the left is an anti-stress red hot Earth mask which I am using promptly!

 Take a good look-you most likely have seen these masks before under their previous name "Montagne Jeunesse". These are just over $1 and available at mass retailers everywhere, like Walmart and Target.

The masks are from the top left: Hot Spring Sauna mask with volanic minerals. Top right is the Sauna Mask.
The bottom left is the Tea Tree Peel Off mask and the bottom right is the Argan Oil mask.

All of these are simple to use and effective! Try one today! You deserve a mini spa day!

Topganics Baobab shampoo and conditioner with oil treatment

Holla back Beauty!
Woot! It's Tuesday. I can hardly believe the month is more than half over. Darn it. That makes me feel so old!
 Onto today's beauty product review: meet Topganic Baobab Oil shampoo, conditioner and oil treatment.
I am loving the scent and texture, and finally, this line of the Topganic products has enough moisture for my dry and curly hair.

Luxurious shampoo and matching conditioner are enriched with Baobab oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Natural essences and Dead Sea Minerals. Our shampoo gently cleanses your hair while maintaining its natural moisture level. Nourishes the hair roots. Leaves your hair soft, healthy and shiny. Wonderfully fragranced.

On the Topganic website, each bottle is $9.00.


 This is the real gem, the Topganic Baobab Oil conditioning oil treatment. I'm so mad my bottle fell over in my "blog box" of products to write on and half of it is gone! That's like losing liquid gold.

This bottle is $13.00.
Infused with authentic natural oils and pure extracts. Provides the natural answer to help protect, nourish and maintain a healthy and shiny head of hair. Baobab oil is rich in natural vitamins A, D, E and F, with superb moisturizing benefits. This golden oil also helps to improve the elasticity of the hair, which reduces breakage and splitting hair. The hair follicles smoothing properties of Baobab makes it easier to style for a beautiful, healthy look.

I love the scent and feel and have put this oil on my hair and dry skin. It has a luxurious feel to it!

I'm a big fan of the Topganic brand and their commitment to healthy and natural beauty products. If you are looking for a new brand to try, get Topganic!

P.S. As you can see, my son has been helping with the photos and working his Lego creations in too!

Sustainable Youth Elasticity cream: what a traveling gal needs

Oh happy Sunday!
I love Sunday!
It is the first day of the week!
Woo hoo!
I get so much done. Not quite as much as a Monday...but still....quite a bit!

 Say hello to Sustainable Youth Elasticity cream. Oh perfect travel companion!


 
Sustainable Youth® Elasticity Cream is a lightweight, daily moisturizer that soothes, hydrates and helps restore skin’s elasticity and firmness for the appearance of thicker, plumper skin.
It contains alasta®, which is clinically proven to improve elasticity and firmness up to 72% in 8 weeks, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and lift and firm sagging skin.

Whether your skin type is dry, oily or sensitive, dermatologists recommend using a daily facial moisturizer as part of your skin care routine. How we treat our skin affects how our skin looks and ages.
Synergies develop when using Elasticity Cream as part of a regimen. A good face cleanser and serum will actually help your moisturizer penetrate deeper and provide more effective hydration. In the morning, apply a moisturizer to banish dry skin and prep your skin for the day ahead. Again, nourished skin is key to a beautiful face—whether made up or makeup free! In the evening, apply your moisturizer and let it help restore, rebalance and repair your skin as you sleep.

Hello Gorgeous!
Happy Hump Day!
I'm still traveling and enjoying it though missing my Mancub who stayed home this trip.

Benefits:  Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles Reduces and prevents sun damage Promotes skin firmness and elasticity Stimulates collagen and elastin production

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week starts now!

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Today September 13 through September 19 is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.

Here at Makeup University, we are "suckers for truckers"!

Think about it, everything you use in your home, from the gas you put in your vehicle to the food on the table, the clothes in the closet and everything in between, gets to you via a truck. And a truck driver.

During this week, Makeup University would like the name of your favorite trucker, so that we may cover them in prayer during their time on the road, being away from home, and making on time, safe deliveries.



Would you please consider posting the name of your favorite trucker. It is our honor to pray for them!

Without truck drivers, Sephora, Ulta Beauty, spas and salons would be empty! No makeup!

As a gift to honor the truck drivers of the United States of America, we will be giving one lucky driver a $50 gift card as a way of saying thank you.



Here is how you enter to win the gift card: @CherelynnBaker on Instagram or @Cherelynn on Twitter

Miss America: how to prep hair for a week of heat styling and hot stage lights

Hello Gorgeous,
Tonight is the Miss America pageant where Kira Kazantsev will end her year of service and pass the crown to a new winner.

I will be cheering for Madi Estevez our Arizona contestant competing on the national stage.

I have two product recommendations for these ladies who are busy from early morning to late at night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

All of that humidity means the ladies sure could use some KMS Hair Stay

 It's perfect for making hair smooth, shiney and keeping pop up fuzzies from happening in humid weather. I use it on my wet hair and then blow dry. Before I flat iron, I give one more spray and comb through my hair before using the iron. Nice and smooth all day! It's so Miss America perfect!

Next, after all of the heat styling and stress of the preparing and event, the KorresAlmond and Linseed  Hair Mask.
I love this product! It smells good, and does a great job of moisturizing tired and overworked hair, then rinses clean and doesn't weigh the hair down afterwards. It's available at Sephora for $22.50.



 What it is:
A nourishing treatment mask that penetrates dry, damaged hair to soften and hydrate for powerful results.

What it is formulated to do:
This ultra-nourishing hair mask deeply penetrates hair to soften and address breakages and split ends. A blend of organic extracts found only on the Greek island of Crete provide antioxidant protection, while hydrating almond and nourishing linseed help prevent future breakage and split ends. Vitamin B3 and provitamin B5 help completely restore the appearance of hair by improving shine, feel, and flexibility. They also protect against mechanical damage due to hot styling or environmental stress. Sea lavender adds an extra dose of hydration and protection for hair that is instantly healthier, softer, smoother, and more manageable.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
KORRES natural hair care was inspired by naturally beautiful Mediterranean women known for their thick, lustrous hair. Their secret is the natural ingredients found only in Greece. This product is silicone-free and formulated using organic extracts only found on the Greek island of Crete. It is 88.9 percent natural.

Remember September 11th and the lives lost

Gorgeous,
Today is a sad day to be noted in history as it is at this time, on September 11th, 2001 that the Twin Towers in New York City were attacked by terrorists by flying into them.



There is a memorial site in New York City. For those of us who are not able to make it there, please take a moment of silence for those who lost their lives, gave their lives while trying to rescue, and those that survived.

7th Heaven masks (formally Montagne Jeunnesse) for travel skincare

Hello Gorgeous,
 I'm in Las Vegas and have my single use masks with me from 7th Heaven. This brand used to be called Montagne Jeunesse but changed their name due to challenges with people being able to pronounce it!

 I love the Argan Oil mud mask and have it on hand to help deep clean last nights concert makeup and prep my skin for tonight's show. 

Embrace the natural joy of Moroccan Argan Oil coupled with antioxidant rich Acai Berries. This power duo join forces in this face mask to deeply cleanse pores, balance oil levels and bring tired skin back to life.

 The Tea Tree oil, I was skeptical to try because I do not like peel off masks because they tend to leave behind little sticky bits that don't exactly peel off easily...but, this 7th Heaven mask did.

Get in the T-Zone and target problem areas with this super soothing peel off mask. Tea Tree, Witch Hazel & Canadian Willowherb come together to calm and clean up impurities.
 

 In closing, I used, I like, and these are perfect for travel and TSA sized just right and can be found at mass retailers everywhere! So get some because they are super affordable at just about a $1!

Happy Labor Day

Hello Gorgeous,
Take the day off! Muah!

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Labor Day Legislation

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887.

During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and on June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

2 pm Periscope & healing the skin from the inside & outside

Holla Beauty!
I'm in Vegas-though I will still be doing the Periscope (@Cherelynn) miracle prayer meeting at 2 pm MST.
Tune in! Post your prayer requests! It's my pleasure to pray for you!

All the travel and different climates I am in can take a toll on my skin. But I need to be refreshed and camera ready most days. So these are two things I am testing now to see about looking "refreshed" when I feel deflated!

 

 I'm trying the Gold Collagen drink which says: "skincare starts with a sip". I agree with that. It's a bit tangy, but definitely tasty. You can find it at Ulta stores or online.

Designed for women wishing to promote beautiful skin and fight the visible signs of ageing. Containing a unique blend of collagen and active ingredients, it nourishes you from the inside, promoting a beautiful and younger looking you on the outside.
  • Helps increase skin hydration and radiance
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Promotes skin suppleness
  • Promotes healthy looking hair and nails
For me, so far so good!

I also like to treat the outside of my skin so it doesn't appear alligator'ish or crepey. Since I love fragrance, I like to use an unscented lotion.

This Curel Fragrance Free lotion has a lil bit more scent than I thought a unscented lotion would have. I know it's good for post-tattoo care and very dry skin. I  like it and use it and have traveled this bottle to Vegas with me. Remember, Vegas is a high desert-meaning it's very dry! 




  • Formulated with time-released moisturizers to relieve and hydrate dry skin, leaving skin smooth and intensely satisfied for 24 hours
  • Preferred by consumers who desire a lotion without fragrance
  • Leaves skin smooth and intensely satisfied for 24 hours
Find your favorite Curel products at mass retailers everywhere or online at Amazon.

What are you doing for Labor Day Weekend? Whatever your plans, I sure hope you have a safe, memory making time! Wear sunscreen!

C.O. Bigelow: classic body products for your home and the Unscripted hotel

Hello Gorgeous!
 Grace! Grace! I cry grace grace!
Oh the travel has been amazing.

Thank you Jesus for the travel!
Though with that blessing comes the wee bit o' discomfort called home sickness and road weary.

I'm so glad to be home for the day.
Yes.
You heard me right.
The day.

I'm preparing to turn around in one day ( Ahhhhh!!!!) to be back on set.

No complaints here. I'm blessed.

This journey has been epic.

It's just. I'm a homebody at heart. Yet. Here I go.

For those of you who need an instant soothe and pick me up, try some C. O. Bigelow lotion.


 No wait. It's more like a cream that you an pump. The scent is amazing. The feel is pure comfort. It's just what I need as I snuggle into my chair, smushed between my Cub and his cat with our dog at our feet. We are going to turn all things off and watch a movie and eat what we like!

Cheers to you being with your loves, smushed into a tight space full of love and comfort with your favorite things and some lovely lotion, like this Bigelow bit to rub sore shoulders with!

Truth, I checked into the Unscripted Hotel on the beach in Monterey Bay California, and lo and behold, there were travel size bottles of C.O. Bigelow to enjoy. Awesome.
See you from the next set!

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month: TriDerma is helping the cause

 Hello Gorgeous!



Last year, I featured my experience with TriDerma® skincare. TriDerma is a line of true skin care products made with Certified Genuine Virgin Organic Aloe, moisturizers, and other carefully selected botanicals to target and help heal a wide variety of skin problems. They offer products for all ages and skin types, and I really enjoyed testing some of their mom-friendly products.

If you’d like to read about my experience, see here: http://makeupuniversity.blogspot.com/2014/11/triderma-for-fall-skincare-needs.html

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and TriDerma is collaborating with American Childhood Cancer Organization to help the cause.



Founded by parents who have faced this challenge themselves, and joined by a national community of families and survivors, the ACCO is uniquely committed to improving the lives of children and families living with cancer and its long-term side effects, as well as bringing ever-greater awareness to the need for new, more effective treatments appropriate for cancer’s youngest warriors.

During the months of August, September and October 2015, TriDerma will donate 20 percent of their sales on five of their specialty products, each hand selected for the different ways they can benefit and help cancer stricken children.



The five products selected include:

  • Baby Feet® Ultimate Foot Cream: This cream smoothes, softens, moisturizes, and helps protect against dry, cracked, rough, and callused feet.
  • Everyday Bruise Relief™: Fast healing and soothing relief for bruises, itching and redness on even the most delicate skin.
  • Post Laser Aloe & Zinc Occlusive™: This creamy occlusive helps provide fast healing and soothing relief for delicate skin following a cosmetic, surgical or aesthetic procedure. It hydrates and helps relieve skin tightness, scabbing, itching, burning and redness. It helps tender skin recover faster.
  • Radiation Skin Relief™ Fast Healing Cream: Helps soothe, heal and minimize the damaging side effects from radiation therapy. Daily use of the Radiation Skin Relief™ Fast Healing Cream helps soothe itching, peeling, redness, burning and the appearance of skin discoloration, a perfect gift for anyone living with radiation side effects or generally damaged skin.
  • Scar Block® for Kids: Helps prevent and minimize scarring for new and existing scars and helps skin irritations heal faster. This cream can be used after stitches are removed, for a gentle, yet powerful medical strength healing. 

These products might benefit children with cancer, but they can also be used on and benefit you and your family.
